False Claims Act/ Qui Tam Lawyer
When a company defrauds the government for profit, they are stealing not only government funds, but the money paid in by taxpayers. Medicare, Medicaid and other government entities that contract with private companies rely on honest business practices. If an employee witnesses their employer committing government fraud, they can report it as a whistleblower through the False Claims Act. As a reward, they may be entitled to receive compensation through a Qui Tam lawsuit.
The U.S. government loses billions of dollars in fraudulent billing and other ways from private companies. To reduce losses, the False Claims Act allows citizens to file a lawsuit or claim against the fraudulent company. This is done through federal court and is sealed for the whistleblower’s protection. If the government investigates the claim and finds the business has committed government fraud, the whistleblower may be eligible to receive compensation. This can be 15-30% of the total amount of money recovered, which has resulted in millions of dollars paid to whistleblowers for their contribution.
